Deconstructing Comics #479: Some of the greatest Superman stories (or not)

Death of Superman

There’s no doubt that Superman is one of the most significant characters in the history of American comics. He ended up setting the template for what would be the dominant genre in American comics after the Comics Code came into effect. Of course, the types of stories told in those comics, and their tone, has varied wildly over the years, which makes it difficult to try to determine which stories are the best of the lot, but naturally people make the attempt, including DC Comics itself.

This week Kumar and Tim look at the 1980s collection “The Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told”, as well as Alan Moore’s “Whatever Happened To the Man of Tomorrow”, which is currently being published in a collection with two other Moore Superman stories. Are these actually the greatest Superman stories?

Featuring Batman’s superior party prep skills, swimming the interplanetary water spout, and the symbolism of the ads in the original printing of “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow”! *Choke*

ep-40

Episode 40 coming at you like a laser beam! Though, you’ll forgive Doc and Shepherd for losing steam around act 3 as the times have been rather demanding.

Regardless, we manage to cover the end of Joshua Dysart’s run on Harbinger, Diamond losing their toll free number, DC’s new pay Model, John Byrne on race-swapping characters in films, Jack Kirby’s Omac, Samurai Jack,and we answer listener questions! All while experiencing the initial pangs of our mid-life crisis. Oh and Amazon is Skynet.

Hey Kids, Comics! Volume 2 Episode 32 – X-Men “Days Of Future Past”

0d9c

Dateline:2013 – Micheal and Andrew delve into the physics of time travel and journey back and forth between today and 1980, bringing with them 2 of the finest comic books ever forged – Uncanny X-Men 141 and 142. They will inevitably meander onto other topics such as The Terminator, James Cameron, The Outer Limits, Harlen Ellison, Back To The Future and Andrew will confuse a past US President with a current day UK comedian. Their names are similar, all right! There is also a SPOILER FILLED discussion of Age Of Ultron (the comic not Avengers 2) somewhere you may want to avoid if you haven’t read that series.

Hey Kids, Comics! Vol2 18 No More Heroes 4

0d9c

To finish off Superman’s Birthday, Micheal and Andrew look at CBR’s top 75 Superman stories, then delve into reader feedback before two more comics that don’t have super heroes in them. Well, kind of. ALIENS: EARTH ANGEL and PLANETARY #3. I’m pretty sure PLANETARY has a super hero in it…

F BombCast 146: Takei Vs. Twinks

One of these days all three of us will be here, i promise. After an awesome amount of levity pointed to the leader of the free world, Sci Fi is gotten into, by way of Kevin being asked to bathe with my four year old.  Enjoy our day of geekdom and manliness, comics, steak, sci-fi and scotch, is there anything that could have made the day better? Battlestar, Aliens, Trek, They Live and more. Then comics,  oh the comics. I, vampire, Teen Titans, Justice League Dark, Superman, Action, Fantastic Four and Dark Shadows all are looked at in one form or another. Enjoy!

The PKD Black Box-Episode #50: Jetta Meets Billy Ocean & John Cena.

Martheus and Janet Wade are interviewed about their latest Original Graphic Novel, Jetta: Tales of The Toshigawa – Full Circle, then Jon Carroll swings by as he and Shawn discuss the iPad 2 and Race In Comics, and later on Donny Salvo stops by as Shawn tells him about the strangest dream he’s ever had, which then lead to a slew of tangents to later finding out what John Cena and Donny have in common!

This episode has everything you could possibly need! Enjoy.
